PAMELA HUTCHINSON    Book Number: 89502    Product format: Hardback

Using just 300 words and one image to tell the story of the genres, techniques, directors and stars who have shaped cinema history, from gritty documentaries to global cinema, glossy musicals to Soviet montage, science fiction and digital filmmaking, each subject is summarised in just a 30 second read. There is a useful glossary at the beginning for example under Stars: Bollywood, Method Acting, New Hollywood, Oscar, rom-com, Talkie and Yakuza (an operative of an organised syndicate in Japan, popular figures in the national cinema since the silent era). In this section alone there are 30 second reads on Mary Pickford, Cary Grant, Toshiro Mifune, Marilyn Monroe, Robert de Niro, Shah Rukh Khan, Catherine Deneuve and a profile on Marlene Dietrich. Other profiles are on D. W. Griffiths, Wes Craven, Alfred Hitchcock, Quentin Tarantino, George Lucas and in the section on Art House Experimental Cinema a profile of Maya Deren. Truly a global overview of 160 large pages beautifully designed with colour photographs, typography and facts-at-a-glance.
